    Govt should place sign boards in English and Kannada, where people go to river for bath, thus:

    "There is drowning hazard for people who venture deep into the river
    People not knowing swimming should wear life jackets and
    Non swimmer survivors who disobeyed the rules will be prosecuted"

    Police and Fire Department are already finding difficult to swim out of Pandemic scare.

    People not cooperating with the Government. But simply blaming administration.
